Just as speculated, Huawei has announced a Xiaomi Redmi 1s killer in India. The phone is called Honor Holly and looks similar (internally and externally) to the newly released Huawei Honor 4 Play for China.
Huawei Honor Holly key specs
- 5-inch HD touchscreen
- 8MP/2MP camera unit by Samsung
- 1GB of RAM, 16GB ROM
- 1.3GHz quad-core CPU
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS
- 2000mAh battery
It’s not clear yet if Huawei plans to sell the Honor Holly in flash sales just like Xiaomi is doing with the Redmi 1s, however, we know the Huawei device will cost just as much as the Xiaomi phone.
Meanwhile the two Chinese companies found themselves on the opposite sides of a boxing ring (not literally) after Xiaomi accused the Huawei Honor team of staging a campaign of insults against the company online.
The CEO of Huawei has since rubbished the allegations as false but Xiaomi’s Lei Jun persists he has enough evidence which he will show everybody soon.
